MLB Draft 2011: Mock Draft Roundup

Most of the major national voices have chimed in with their draft projections and mock drafts. The Rangers pick No. 33 in the 2011 draft. Here are their most recent projections.


ESPN - Keith Law (May 30):

Brandon Nimmo, OF, East HS (Cheyenne, Wyo.)
Still hearing Josh Osich connected with Texas but they could probably grab him with their next pick at 37, and Harrison is probably in the same boat.


Baseball America - Jim Callis (May 27):

33. RANGERS: Texas focuses on athletes, and with new ownership it might be willing to spend on Nimmo. Swihart and Goodwin also would fit the Rangers mold. Projected Pick: Brandon Nimmo.


Scout.com - Frankie Piliere (June 1): 

33. Travis Harrison, Tustin HS - ANALYSIS: Harrison fits everything the Rangers' scouting department is about. He's big, strong and athletic. And, of late he's been on the rise on many boards. Texas doesn't have a short list here because, quite frankly, there's no way to predict what will be available.


SB Nation - John Sickels (May 30):

33) Rangers (for Cliff Lee): Trevor Story, SS, Texas HS: Sure, the Rangers have Profar, but Don't Draft For Need. Story is local, has good offensive potential, can stick at shortstop, and you can never have too many infielders who can hit. Signability of previous choice Derek Fisher is clouded by strong Virginia commitment. Brandon Nimmo and Blake Swihart are also plausible.
